I discovered yoga at a gym. And after my first class, I walked out a little punch drunk, feeling like I’d been deeply pummeled by a powerful masseuse.
Then one day, after running a little too long and a little too fast on the treadmill of corporate work and urban life, I fell over. Overwhelmed with depression and exhaustion, it was yoga that saw me through the haze, shone a light in the dark, and enabled me to heal, re-focus and re-energise.
I have been MAD about yoga ever since and have experienced first hand the benefits of yoga in my work, studies and life.
That doesn’t make me perfect though. Some days I’m not as ‘yogi’ as I’d like to be. I still snap at my partner, lose patience with my daughter or am too pushy with my workmates. I once smoked (yes, cigarettes!) and I still enjoy a glass of wine or indulge in one too many pieces of chocolate. My body isn’t a perfect temple, deeply cleansed on the inside, or tirelessly taught on the outside.
But my journey in yoga has been a slow unfolding into the power of the practice. Like the pull of a soft light or that almost imperceptible voice deep down inside, it draws you gently and persistently in. To your Self. And your Potential.
I look forward to contributing to your exploration of the power of yoga to enable you to be more productive at work, more focused at school and more balanced in life.
Motivate. Activate. Dive In.
Go On. Be M.A.D.
With Love, Katherine
